S.A.D.L.E.S. Ranch offers a safe, motivating and non-threatening environment where your child can learn and grow.
We can help your child address real life issues and challenges by learning healthy ways to cope, handle stress and improve their social skills. We offer Group and Individual Counseling, Equine Therapy, and Nature Based Experiential Learning programs for Children and Adolescents.
Your child will enjoy interacting with the horses through groundwork and mounted initiatives.
Children do not need any previous experience with horses to get the full benefit of our programs. We provide all the safety and riding equipment necessary. We only ask that your child wear close-toed shoes (no flip flops, sandles, etc.).
Individual Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
Equine therapy is an alternative to traditional counseling and physical therapy that involves using horses as part of the therapy process. Horses add an incredible element because they’re truth tellers. They’re mighty and huge but their spirits are genuine. Equine therapy provides immediate feedback based on the horse’s response to an individual.
Path International Studies show that using horses as part of the therapy process improves emotional control, self-discipline, self-esteem, patience, responsibility, and empathy. Horses respond to an individual’s emotional state and provide immediate feedback.
